Media Myths On Katrina

I find it interesting that libs demand apologies from Republicans for "lying", but they have ZERO interest in demanding the same from themselves or their media lap dogs when they lie. Cases in point: Dan Rather's so-called "documents" which supposedly proved Bush was AWOL and worse than that, any and all coverage of hurricane Katrina by their bitches in the media. It goes to show that libs don't give a damn about the truth and if they're proven to be liars, they ignore it and go about their business of smearing anybody in their path.

Check this out:

Media Myths On Katrina includes an article by Popular Mechanics dispelling the liberal media lies. Here's my favorite:


"The aftermath of Katrina will go down as one of the worst abandonments of Americans on American soil ever in U.S. history."–Aaron Broussard, president, Jefferson Parish, La., Meet the Press, NBC, Sept. 4, 2005

REALITY: Bumbling by top disaster-management officials fueled a perception of general inaction, one that was compounded by impassioned news anchors. In fact, the response to Hurricane Katrina was by far the largest–and fastest-rescue effort in U.S. history, with nearly 100,000 emergency personnel arriving on the scene within three days of the storm's landfall.

Dozens of National Guard and Coast Guard helicopters flew rescue operations that first day–some just 2 hours after Katrina hit the coast. Hoistless Army helicopters improvised rescues, carefully hovering on rooftops to pick up survivors. On the ground, "guardsmen had to chop their way through, moving trees and recreating roadways," says Jack Harrison of the National Guard. By the end of the week, 50,000 National Guard troops in the Gulf Coast region had saved 17,000 people; 4000 Coast Guard personnel saved more than 33,000.

These units had help from local, state and national responders, including five helicopters from the Navy ship Bataan and choppers from the Air Force and police. The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries dispatched 250 agents in boats. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), state police and sheriffs' departments launched rescue flotillas. By Wednesday morning, volunteers and national teams joined the effort, including eight units from California's Swift Water Rescue. By Sept. 8, the waterborne operation had rescued 20,000.

While the press focused on FEMA's shortcomings, this broad array of local, state and national responders pulled off an extraordinary success–especially given the huge area devastated by the storm. Computer simulations of a Katrina-strength hurricane had estimated a worst-case-scenario death toll of more than 60,000 people in Louisiana. The actual number was 1077 in that state.

 NEXT TIME: Any fatalities are too many. Improvements hinge on building more robust communications networks and stepping up predisaster planning to better coordinate local and national resources.

PM PRESCRIPTION Improving Response

 ONE OF THE BIGGEST reminders from Katrina is that FEMA is not a first responder. It was local and state agencies that got there first and saved lives. Where the feds can contribute is in planning and helping to pay for a coordinated response. Here are a few concrete steps.

My point has been that there were rescue efforts in effect even before the storm had passed. There was an article in Firehouse Magazine which mentioned that while Mississippi was still being hammered, FEMA USAR teams were already moving into south Louisiana and beginning rescue operations. Heckuva job, Brownie! Meanwhile, where were the liberal douchebag Katrina Chickens??? Nowhere.

Considering how their bitches in the media reported on the storm's aftermath and the posing and race baiting from the left, I can say without a doubt that the liberals can shove it sideways on the Katrina issue.

Additionally, the libs got all wrapped up in politicizing the issue wound up shitting all over the rescuers in the process. Way to go, FAGS! They were too busy pissing themselves for not being able to photograph dead bodies in the water to give a damn about those who were rescued and the rescuers. They were too busy spooging themselves because Sean Penn (F.A.G.) did what to help out?
